In the article about the WhatsApp beta for Android 22.214.171.124 update, we have discovered that WhatsApp is working on a revamped introduction to disappearing messages by announcing the ability to keep or undo a kept message: thanks to this feature, it will be possible to keep a disappearing message to prevent its expiration. After releasing the WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 update on the Play Store, we discovered something new about keeping disappearing messages:
As you can see in this screenshot, WhatsApp is working on informing users that disappearing messages support keeping messages in the chat. In addition, WhatsApp also plans to announce that messages disappear from a disappearing chat after their expiration as usual, except when kept. People in the conversation can always keep a disappearing message or undo a kept message by viewing the message option but when they undo a kept message, the message is automatically deleted for everyone and it is not possible to recover it.
The ability to keep a disappearing message in order to prevent its expiration is under development and it will be released in a future update of the app.
